Omg, Sony made an amazingly good looking phone, which is also waterproof! What do we do now? Lets make our flagship a little bit tougher and take away some features. So we have a waterproof phone too, but not as good as the S4. We are so innovative again.
That was samsungs thought.
this is so boring they put again 8mp sensor they woud do better if they hadnt go for this phone,they just made one phone with 13mp and that it.
Are those wireless bands confirmed? If so, that implies Verizon coverage. Don't tease me, my heart can't take it.
Anonymous, 05 Jun 2013everybody is saying Samsung stole the waterproof idea from Sony, Samsung released a waterproof... moreThe splash resistant phone idea goes to Nokia 5500 Sport :D : http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_5500_sport-1557.php
If they put 13mp snapper,then who will buy Samsung galaxy s4(regular)....they want just our money because they very sharp-minded.......
I haven't bought a phone yet and it was gonna be either Xperia Z or S4 or (now) S4 Active. All 3 phones have fantastic specs but (call me an arse) for me, looks matter just as much as specs. So, I think I'll be going for Xperia Z. :)
everybody is saying Samsung stole the waterproof idea from Sony, Samsung released a waterproof phone in 2011, the Galaxy Xcover, and the xcover 2 in 2012 which was also waterproof. doesn't that mean Sony stole the idea from them?????????
kunalsingh, 05 Jun 2013Please Samsung jus stop making customers fool.for wat reasons u have named this handset as s4.... morethey call it an s4 because of all the features, and it needs to be more durable to be waterproof and dustproof
like automobiles, same car model, but with different engine size and trim !
you should go for a industrial process course to understand how to make several models with same frame.
heheheh SG S4 Active thought would be better than the S4 is on sale, but we get wrong, 11gb rom contains S4 Active, 8 mega pixel camera, that is weaker than S4
Mahirtelcom, 05 Jun 2013I agree with you, But it would be better if they didn't downgrade the camera and the screen. ... moreDude, they downgrade to 8MP mainly due to supply issues. Sony is the supplier for the camera sensors. They may have used LCD so that it does not affect S4 Super AMOLED supplies. Or maybe they removed all these to keep the phone price lower or to protect the sales of original S4s. They may have other reasons but most importantly is your preferences. There are many devices available in the market now for you to choose. Pick one you that you think worth your money.
Adheesha, 01 Jun 2013I can't believe Samsung. This is so ridiculous. All they do is copy others ideas and include t... moreStop whining like an old lady about copying. None of those inventions originated from Sony either. It is pretty natural that one person is inspired by another person's achievements. Aren't you proudly saying that you are graduate too just like million others in the world? I could easily say that you copied too. Samsung may lost the initial battle of lawsuit but that has not ended till today and Samsung haven't paid Apple yet. Google up and read about it. You can stick with your Xperia Z if you want too and no one is stopping you.
Please Samsung jus stop making customers fool.for wat reasons u have named this handset as s4.neither it has super amoled screen nor 13 mp camera.galaxy s4 n earlier s3 are praised for low weight,this handset fail in this regard too heavier than htc one.
merely making screen of 5inch n 2gb ram is not in anyway sufficient
Laurence , 05 Jun 2013TFT touchscreen, no Super Amoled.... dissapointed yes, you are right
